Tork Joins Forces With Philadelphia Eagles to Enhance Sustainability Efforts at Lincoln Financial Field and Novacare Complex
Upgraded hygiene products, Tork PeakServe hand towel dispenser system and Tork Clarity Hand Washing Foam Soap, will provide 1.7 million fans with hygienic experiences annually
PHILADELPHIA, June 13, 2023 /3BL Media/ - The Philadelphia Eagles and Tork®, the professional hygiene brand from the global hygiene and health company, Essity, with North America headquarters in Philadelphia, today announced enhanced sustainability efforts by making an upgrade to the hygiene solution products available at Eagles facilities. The team will deploy the Tork PeakServe® Continuous™ hand towel system and Tork® Clarity Hand Washing Foam Soap at Lincoln Financial Field and NovaCare Complex.
The Eagles and Tork have partnered since 2007 to raise awareness and promote the benefits of proper hygiene. The partnership reinforces the Eagles' commitment to sustainability and providing hygienic, safe experiences for fans.
"Tork has been a valuable partner to the Philadelphia Eagles for 16 years, providing innovative hygiene solutions that help us achieve our sustainability goals," said Norman Vossschulte, Director of Fan Experience and Sustainability, Philadelphia Eagles.

The Tork PeakServe Continuous Hand Towel system offers the highest capacity system available in the market, serving over 1,000 guests between refilling occasions1. The system helps minimize overconsumption with one-at-a-time dispensing, and towels are compressed by 50% to reduce storage space and transportation footprint2.

The eco-friendly, readily biodegradable3 soap features lower water consumption by up to 35%4, and 99% of its ingredients come from natural origin5.
